Storm Before The Calm

9 "(A) Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name.

10 '(B) Your kingdom come, (C) Your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.

11 '(D) Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and (E) forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13 'And do not lead us into temptation, but (F) deliver us from (G) evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.]'

14 "(H) For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

15 "But (I) if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.

-Matthew 6:9-15

[Editor's note: Got unexpectedly swamped at the office; no time for blogging there, and no energy for blogging after arriving home. Besides, the blogger server was down for maintenance - again. What a piece of crap. Good thing it was a relatively slow news day. Until the revelation of al Qaeda's latest (hopefully foiled) "home-grown" terrorist plot, anyway. Boy, bloggers really do never get to take vacations, do we?]
